BETA PHOTO: 2nd pitch of Bobcat, from base. Savor them chicken...
The beautiful curving thin crack R of Peanuts to Serve You. Start as for Peanuts, then cut R on easy ground (5.9) to reach a 2 bolt belay. Climb the crack, passing 2 bolts and 1 fixed pin to reach chains.
Includes thin laybacking, pocket pulling, tip-jamming, and knob climbing.
Caveat: I haven't climbed it yet. But I did take a picture today!
Same as Peanuts: It's above the L side of Private Idaho.
Lots of thin-finger sized gear, at least 4 quickdraws, plus a few hand-sized cams for the approach pitch.

Can be climbed in one pitch from the ground if the rope is pulled through once the two bolt anchor is reached. In the picture shown, the climb is actually the upper crack that is seen only as a margin between light and dark rock. Gear should emphasize finger size cams but include up to a gold C4. Doubles or triples are useful in the small to medium range. There are a couple of bolts on the climb as well. This has to be one of the best cracks around these parts, continuously overhung and splitter as can be.
